Leader Training Workshops Have Begun....
for Parents, Teachers and anyone interested in gardening with children.
Leave the kids at home and spend a day exploring new and exciting ways to share the joy and wonders that can be found in a garden.
Kids should know where food really comes from and have the opportunity to experience the excitement and sense of pride that comes from growing something from seed to plate.
The garden can reconnect your kids with nature, wholesome & healthy food and an exciting world that can spark curiosity and learning that can last a lifetime.
This training workshop will be spent sharing tips and strategies to garden with children, interact with families, and enrich the lives of others using hands-on garden activities.
Every "Leader-in-Training" will get loads of information, a binder full of resources and ideas for "hand-on garden activities" that will help you learn how to launch kids and their families on an exciting adventure growing, preparing and eating fresh California-grown fruits & veggies.
....and it's FREE!
This program is sponsored by the USDA and the CA Dept. of Food & Agriculture.
NOTE: Leaders who complete five online modules can get Leader Certification. Certified garden leaders become part of the KGS team and have access to Kids Growing Strong educational handouts, free seeds, banners, displays and continuing support.
Visit the Kids Growing Strong website for full details.
Everyone who signs up at least two weeks before the start of the class will receive a Kids Growing Strong insulated tote at the door. Use the tote to carry home your loot and to keep your fruits and veggies cool & fresh when you get them at the market.
